I've been a comic book fan for years, I originally got hooked on them cause I had a major case of hero worship with my cousin Perry... I was such a dork. Never mind...I'm still a dork! Lately though I've been getting a bit ticked at Marvel and DC because they keep screwing around with my favorite teams.

First it was Generation X when they brought in all those baseline students and killed of Synch. The whole thing with Monet I could deal with, it was kind of interesting, but I really didn't like Emma's sister... Ugh.

After that they screwed around with Young Justice and the Teen Titans and did this whole “Graduation Day” thing. I'll admit that I never really liked Cissie and Empress got on my nerves but I adored Impulse...a character who loves pushing buttons as much as I do...you just can't get better then that! And while I like having Kid Flash, Superboy, Wonder Girl, and Robin all part of the new Teen Titans I was upset to see YJ end. Not as upset as I was when they killed of Spoiler though...I loved Steph's relationship with Tim!

I'm not even going to get into the whole “House of M” stuff... Oii... It was the first time I ever wanted to strangle a comic character. I was a little flabbergasted that Marvel would blow up an entire bus full of children, even if they had been mutants originally. Then to have Jay's wings cut off on top of all that and make Sam feel so sad...I just wanted to hug both of them!

Gah...enough rambling, I'm not making sense to anyone but myself am I? Besides I'm not even sure anyone else who reads my journal even reads comics. I was just planning on writing a little bit about the new YA issue and I just wind up rambling...

I LOVE Young Avengers! I've only got a few problems with the entire thing. The first is that Marvel has plans to make it bi-monthly, it's already difficult enough to wait for the next month's issue...now after the entire Civil War thing I'm going to have wait two months before the next issue? Grr...argh... Also! It took way to long to get #11 in stores. The guy who runs the store I go to said it was several weeks behind.

Anyway...now that I have it in my hot little hands here is my poor excuse at review. Naturally its behind a cut because its the brand new issue.

Young Avengers #11: Family Matters Part III )

Enough of my ramblings. I'm off to mangle the motorcycle riders who frequent the bar next door. Why they feel it is important to rev their engines and create massive amounts of smoke at 11:15pm is beyond me. The people who cheer them on are just as annoying...
